South Africa is a fantastic destination to share with your family. Sun, sea and safari.
When you arrive in Johannesburg you will collect your rental car and take a leisurely drive out to Sun International’s flagship resort, Sun City. This drive will take you approximately 90 minutes. Sun City is great fun for the whole family – the Valley of the Waves is a popular destination, with the Temple of Courage water slide and the body and tube slides. This is heaven for water lovers. The two golf courses are always in excellent condition, so challenge yourself on the Gary Player course, the home of the Million Dollar championship. Sun City borders the Pilanesberg National Park which is a game reserve with the big five on a 50.000 hectare, malaria free area. Safaris can be booked for a morning or an afternoon game drive or if you prefer, you can do a self-drive in your own vehicle.
After 4 nights at Sun City you will drive back to the airport, hand in your vehicle and catch a domestic flight to George on the Garden Route. You will experience spectacular sea scenery on your drive through to Knysna. Your home for the next 3 nights will be at Bollard Bay House on Leisure Isle in Knysna. This is a beautiful island on the magnificent Knysna lagoon. Here you can relax next to the swimming pool and enjoy the beautiful views of the lagoon or get active with all the fun things to do around Knysna. Take a sunset cruise on the lagoon, hike in the beautiful forests, take a walk on one of the beautiful beaches and of course experience some of the fine cuisine in the restaurants Knysna has to offer.
After leaving Knysna behind with some great memories of your time there, you will take approximately 5-6 hours to drive through to Cape Town – the Mother City of South Africa. You will be staying at the Cape View Clifton. Cape Town has so much to offer, from hiking, biking, the hop on-hop off red bus, beautiful beaches, excellent cuisine and of course all the tourist attractions. You will need a holiday when you arrive home from your holiday! If you would prefer to have a more organised self-drive with dinners and activities booked throughout your journey, we can organise this with pleasure. If you prefer to take it easy and arrange activities as you go along, we can do this too. We feel that this “taste of South Africa” will leave you wanting to come back for more!
